Or indeed any of the above! As you will remember oh Evil Bunny,  
Postmix, the flexibility of that 'aged monolithic software' you like  
with the performance of that 'patched to death to bring it close to  
modern' MTA :-)

Personally, I use maildir with Courier-IMAP, Squirrelmail (For  
webmail) and all tied together with MySQL userdb (And managed through  
Postfix-Admin, which is nice and simple and you can delegate mailbox  
control to 'domain admins', which saves loads of support time when  
users want another alias or mailbox set up).
